WHAT WE BELIEVE
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We agree with the basis of faith which the Evangelical Alliance adhere to and can be found here:
The one true God who lives eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ – born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God – fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; His ascension to the Father, and His reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
The dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
The church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers — given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
What We Believe
That marriage is reserved solely for one man and one woman, and that sex is a gift from God for marriage, and that any sex outside of marriage is contrary to God’s word.
That same sex attraction is real, but by God's grace all are able to remain faithful to Scripture and live a happy and fulfilled life.
We believe that we find our truest identity in Christ rather than in gender, economic status, culture or nationality.
